When the great Massimo Osti founded Stone Island, he used to make a lot of things out of tarp. No, really. He loved military designs, loved the way military vehicles were draped in resistant tarpaulin and vowed to integrate the functional design that was born out of pragmatism into the mainstream fashion canon. He succeeded, and now, whenever you wear anything Stone Island – especially if it’s in a variation of khaki – you’re continuing Osti’s bold and historic aim. Go forth, armed with the iconic badge and the satisfaction that you’re taking part in something bigger than yourself.
